Well I am sitting here at DDs gymnastics and have a minute to think straight lol. Once school is in routine things will be less hectic but that start of school with new students and schedules are just so hard to get used to.
Rylee is waking once a night but honestly DH is a saint when it comes to night stuff. I am horrible. I can be up super early but middle of night is not my thing. He helps so much which is great but Rylee is also pretty easy and doesn't really cry all that much. This week is my first full one at work plus gymnastics today, swim tomorrow, dance sat... It never ends lol
Oh and I am such a freak and super excited to announce how happy I am that I started Christmas shopping this weekend
I started my christmas shopping too! Haha.
Vicki, my DH also insisted on putting Henry in his crib and it worked for a few nights, but tonight after 2 hours of screaming Henry is back in his rock n play. He was SHOCKED on Saturday when we did successfully put him in the crib and he woke at 2am and I nudged DH and told him it was his turned. He sleepily said "huh?" I said I just nursed him and changed his diaper, so its your turn buddy. He got up and did it, but was a whinybutt the next morning about being so tired. I was like if you're tired, I'm not even sure how I'm functioning right now.
I also feel like he is not getting full at night. I wonder if I should start topping him off with a bottle again. I was trying to avoid it since I hate dealing with bottles from daycare and because I use more of my freezer stash. But maybe that's what he needs.
Off the baby topic. OMG ladies, I got into a GIANT fight with my co-worker today. We have never gotten along in the year that we have worked together, she is just so weird. She is super anti-social, super bossy and just my total opposite. Well it all came out. We just blew up at each other. My boss sat us down and made us apologize to each other and forced us to have a private chat. Well in that private chat, she brought up random stuff that bothered her about me over the past year. She said I said things that I would NEVER in a million years would have said. Because I don't even feel them. She said that it hurt her feelings that I said "Architects know more about plants than Landscape Architects." Umm I know they don't, and I will be the first person to tell you that I know didly squat about plants, and when people ask me a plant question, I always tell them that she is our resident plant expert. I don't know where she came up with that. And she said that I hurt her feelings when I asked her the same question 3x in one day. She said it was 2 days before I went into labor. She often ignores me when I ask her questions, so I was like "was this a situation where you were ignoring me?" OMG, I have to find another job. She is driving me nuts. She took over all my projects while I was on maternity leave and now she thinks she's my boss. I was fine working under her direction until she snapped at me twice last week.
It was just so strange, she is a very overly organized person. And I really felt like she made an outline before starting this fight with me. Because I was just emotional and she kept saying to me "I can't control your emotions Elizabeth." I was like, what does that even mean? And she was trying to stay on "agenda" with her fight topics. So bizarre. My boss came to me after work and told me that we absolutely need to keep her, but that she is a weirdo and the hardest person to work with. My boss also said that while I was on maternity leave that they had to snap back at her and remind her who signs her paychecks. I just don't know why we have to keep her. My other co-workers also approached me saying that they felt for me and that she is way too intense.
Ok sorry to vent. My DH can't listen to another word of it.
Oh wow! What a nut job! I can't imagine having to work with someone like that.
Aimee, I know how you feel on the hectic life thing. I love my job, but I hate the hussle of having to get home from work, get dinner knocked out, then off to soccer practice. I wouldn't be as bad if DH wasn't in school three nights a week.
Wow, Elizabeth.. I would go nuts too! She really sounds wacky... and very insensitive. I hope something works out though.. I can't stand it when someone at work and I get in an argument, makes everything so tense.
Lucas gets his 4 month shots next week.. IDK why so late.. but whatever lol I think DH is going to take off work and take him and watch him that day bc he usually gets fussy and runs a fever. My DH is awesome about getting up at night.. we take turns, he does it one night, I do it the other night
Ladies, how do you feel, how are your hormones? Sometimes mine are still raging.. lol
Elizabeth, she sounds crazy! I'm glad your coworkers agree with you though. I hope you guys can come to some sort of compromise.
Hormones? I know my hair is still falling out but not as bad anymore. And I'm getting pimples again which isn't fun. Otherwise I feel pretty "normal".
Elizabeth, I don't even know how you kept your cool. My Chicago girl attitude would have come out in that meeting for sure. Some people are just nuts.
My hair is still falling out as well, but not as much as before. Otherwise, I feel like my old self again for the most part.
We have so much stuff going on it isn't even funny. Everything we have going on could be a whole other post in itself. I'm so stressed lately that I feel like I need a vacation from myself.
Hormones yes! I wake up super sweaty still and my hair is falling out all over the place. I feel disgusting. Haha. I will take it over having AF back though. I keep feeling like she will come any day now. But I really hope she doesn't come back until I wean Henry. That would be magical!
Sorry you are stressed Jill. Will the weekend help at all? Hope you get a vacation soon!
Nidia, we usually take the day off for Henry's shots too. The last round was not fun. We are splitting up his shots, so he gets them every month. Poor kid.
Elizabeth that seems very rough to deal with at work. I hate when confrontation comes in the work place like that because the way it should be handled and the way you want to is not always the same lol
The hair falling out makes me NUTS!!!! I feel like i was done this time with my DD and I just want it to stop!!!
Rylee slept like a rockstar last night which means so did I and I had a light teaching day today so I was able to regroup and put my thoughts together. I am in a weird point with working out right now and as much as I WANT to I just get lazy due to tired and wanting to do other things. BLAH. Hoping this week with craziness will make me go back to the mood of wanting to go and actually going lol
I pretty much finished shopping for the girls for christmas today . All that will be left are some stocking stuffers!!! I had a 30% off coupon from Kohls and they have great toy bargains online so I got so much for a great price
Ok off to pick up the girls and head home.. we are having a weird heat day today with super high humidity and it being 93 which is off during Spetember
